Via the Pope's Hill Neighborhood Association, District C-11 reports on a duo preying on the elderly the past couple of days:
Guys ringing bells and saying they are doing tree work or landscaping work on the house behind the house they are ringing bell. They are trying to get the victim (usually elderly) to go behind the house with them and then a second individual will enter house and steal things. One on Train St. that suspects made entry and stole cash and one on Neponset Ave. where potential victim refused suspect entry and locked door(right move). If you could pass the word to all to be on aware of these scams and to call 911 ASAP. Both incidents described a suspect as w/m, 50's. 5'7". Believe there is a second suspect who enters house but no description of second suspect."
